  Storey County Map


This Site is Available for Adoption

Created in 1861 and named for Captain Edward Fariss Storey, who was killed in 1860 in the Pyramid Lake Indian War.

It is the smallest county because it had the most people when it was created in 1861. Virginia City is the county seat. Today, Storey County is noted for its legal prostitution.
